Hi there,

I wish all the readers of the weekly newsletter, a very Happy Idd. We are celebrating Idd today in England and luckily it is a Bank Holiday as well.

I have seen Facebook post about the upcoming The Perl and Raku Conference 2022, Houston, TX. With this, I kept wondering why not have London Perl Workshop 2022 too? Being member of the LPW organizing team, I discussed it with fellow member, Julien. Good news is he seems positive about it as well. I don't know whether we have enough time to kickstart the process. Just hoping we get the opportunity to organize the conference. It has been a long time since we last had the gatherings in London. We had German Perl Workshop organized successfully only recently. Although I didn't see a single event report published by attending members unfortunately. I remember last time when I attended the German Perl Workshop, there were plenty of post event reports published as per the tradition.

Enjoy rest of the newsletter.

Mohammad S. Anwar
